I’m Proud of Him: Jamie Kompon on LA Kings’ 1000-Gamer Drew Doughty

Former LA Kings assistant Jamie Kompon couldn’t contain his pride when speaking about Drew Doughty reaching his 1000-game milestone. They say hindsight is 20/20. We could argue until we’re blue in the face about how the LA Kings would have fared had they landed the No. 1 pick in the 2008 NHL Draft and drafted Steven Stamkos. Then again, maybe the Kings would have taken Drew Doughty at No. 1. Nevertheless, we will never know, and, quite frankly, that’s okay. After all, the Kings selecting Drew Doughty with the No. 2 pick that spring was just one of a series of decisions — albeit a major one — that propelled a long-suffering franchise into a Stanley Cup champion. So, while the 2008 Draft Weekend saw the Kings make a plethora of forwarding progress, which included the acquisition of Jarret Stoll and Matt Greene, few moves were more significant than drafting Drew Doughty.
